Singapore based Amaker3D has announced today that they will launch a Kickstarter campaign for their new 3D printer, Amaker.

The team says the printer is equipped with next generation controller boards and dual ARM 32 bit processors. The printer has a sleek design and aluminum structure. It features integrated threaded lead screw stepper motors for precise motion control.

"Designed with users' experience in mind, we've added a full color touch screen LCD to allow easy control of the entire printer," says Shufen Yeo, Amaker3D's co-founder. "Various printer actions have been coded into selectable utilities for easy activation via LCD. Amaker 3D printer empowers users to print in multi colors. Users can easily switch colors anytime during the printing process."

"To ensure good 3D printer performance, our beta printer prototype has been subjected to three months of vigorous stress testing. Hot end has been tested to function at a high temperature up to 315°C. These testing results showed that we have a robust 3D printing solution." says Siew Hong Goh, Amaker3D's co-founder.

Inspired by the open source community Amaker3D has decided to open source their new design. Amaker3D will offer the Amaker printer bundled with filament spools in the Kickstarter campaign. The printer will be fully assembled and function out of the box with minimum set up.

Features & technical specifications:

  • In-house designed electronics with dual-core ARM processors. Stepper motor driver can control up to 32 micro steps.
  • Full color touchscreen LCD
  • Build volume: 230 X 140 X 175 mm
  • Heated platform with assisted bed leveling
  • Up to 20 microns layer resolution
  • 0.4mm nozzle diameter
  • 1.75mm filament diameter (PLA, ABS)
  • Connection: SD card
  • Integrated power supply

The Amaker 3D printer campaign will be launched on April 15, 2014 9 a.m. PDT.

Amaker3D has released two videos. The first video shows the Amaker 3D printer in action.

The second video demonstrates the ability of Amaker to print multiple colors. Users can easily switch colors in between layers during printing.

@cts it kind of is, but i can personally think of a few uses, though they mostly stem from me wanting to print highly detailed things with moveable parts so colorcode ing to some degree is necessary.

I think switch color between layers is useless.
